Welcome to Class 1

Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely Easter break and that you are looking forward to another half term full of exciting new topics.

In Literacy, we will be exploring two new books 'The Rabbit Problem' and 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit'. Through exploring these wonderful stories, the children will be given opportunities to produce some exciting pieces of writing. We will continue to focus on using finger spaces, full stops and capital letters consistently.

Our new Science topic is 'On Safari'. The children will be using simple equipment to identify, describe and classify different invertebrates. They will also have the opportunity to watch the life cycle of a butterfly up close as we will looking after our own caterpillars this half term. In History, we will be exploring the question 'How do we know so much about Sappho used to live?' The children will use pictures and artefacts to learn about what happened to Pompeii.

This half term, Year 1 will have PE on Wednesday and Friday. On these days, your child must come into school in sportswear for the full day. PE sessions will be outdoors, so please ensure that their sports clothing is weather appropriate. If your child doesn't come into school in a full PE kit on these days, we will give you a call in the morning so that it can be brought to school. During PE lessons this half term, the children will be doing dance, multi-skills and football.

If you wish to discuss your child's learning in Year 1, please email You will receive a response as soon as possible, within the school day.
